The Apple Orchard: not exactly the Garden of Eden

Tip of the hat to Kurt Wismer for retweeting this link from @FSLabsAdvisor: “5 Reasons You Should Be Scared of Apple” from cracked.com. See:

http://www.cracked.com/article_18377_5-reasons-you-should-be-scared-apple.html

In fact, this article by Robert Evans was posted back in February 2010, and has, as I write this, been viewed 1,760,144 times, so you may well be ahead of me on this particular curve.

If you’re not, and you think you might gain some pleasure from a darkly comic consideration in which Apple sometimes acts exactly like an authoritarian, humourless, distinctly uncool major corporate with a mighty pair of jackboots and an aggressive commercial agenda just like everybody else, give it a whirl.

(No, Apple haven’t demanded an apology or threatened to sue me for anything yet, not even a couple of less than flattering presentations and papers I’ve done recently. When they do, you’ll be the first to know.)
